Adelaide is a well planned and organised city. Due to its smaller size compared to other Australian cities like Sydney and Melbourne, getting around in Adelaide is usually a pleasant and swift experience. The size of Adelaide is approximately 1 mile square, which makes travelling around the city a manageable task.
Adelaide boasts an impressive public transport system called the Adelaide Metro. It consists of bus, train and tram services.
Buses are the main choice for public transport, with bus stops and stations littered all over the city. In fact the citizens of Adelaide love using public transport so much that they are right behind Sydney and Melbourne in terms of usage.
If you’re planning a day out, the day trip ticket is the best value for money, which allows unlimited ticket validations for the entire day. Also with the day trip ticket, it will work on any of the three modes of public transport.
There’s also a free bus called the Bee Line, which runs throughout the city and is a great way to get a glimpse of what Adelaide offers.
It must be said that Adelaide’s train system is underdeveloped and isn’t a major part of the city’s transport system. Most trains only go to suburbs that are either very far away from the CBD or are underdeveloped themselves.
As far as tram services go, once again like the trains, they’re not a major part of Adelaide transport but they are used in a more positive light. For several decades the classic Glenelg trams have been transporting people from Victoria Sq to the vibrant and popular beachside suburb called Glenelg. However more recently these old trams have been upgraded to the finest in German engineering and a tramline has been extended the CBD of Adelaide.
Taxis are plentiful in Adelaide with the major companies being Yellow Cabs and Independent Taxis
One of the most exclusive things about Adelaide is its natural beauty. Gorgeous parklands surround the city and are a begging to be walked along. The Adelaide parklands are an eventful evening out and there is much to do. Barbecues and playgrounds make it the perfect day out and riding your bicycle is a good idea as well.
Adelaide is definitely a well-planned city with much to do and see. In this case being smaller isn’t necessarily a bad thing.[netinsert=0.0.1.2.18.7.2]
